The former Bob Evans building, located at 230 Milan Ave., soon could become the home of a new restaurant.
“My understanding is that property is under contract with someone else,” Norwalk Mayor Rob Duncan told the Reflector this week.
According to county auditor’s office records, the property still is owned by Bob Evans, a title it has held since 1996. The property is appraised at $410,000.
“I don’t have a lot of specific details on it,” Duncan said about what type of eatery might occupy the building.
“With the location and some of the requirements set by Bob Evans, I think it will be something different other than Bob Evans,” the mayor said. “I think some sort of family-style place.”
Though there is much talk about the future of the former Bob Evans, the city planning and zoning office doesn’t have any official construction documents yet on the project, the mayor said.
“We’ve yet to see a set of plans,” Duncan added.
